After low-calorie diets with restrictions to the limit of the healthy, it is advisable to start a maintenance stage where the diet is normalized, is healthier, not so low in calories, and also allows not to regain the lost weight.
This stage is called the Maintenance diet; more than a diet, it is a healthy way of eating, which we should maintain indefinitely.
The more your food is similar to what grows in nature, the better. Raw foods are better than cooked foods because your body must work harder to eat them.
For the same reason, pure food is better than processed food. Follow the following healthy habits when reinserting banned foods into your diet.
Alcohol is one of the most complicated foods to reintroduce into the diet.
After a diet with a strong calorie restriction, your body is like a clean and dry sponge. When you drink alcohol, any type of alcohol, your body will absorb it.
You will feel bloated and puffy skin almost immediately after drinking. So I think the only healthy alcohol for you is red wine.
Red wine contains certain nutrients that are good for the heart. Also, it has a very good flavor, which encourages you to drink it slowly. Lastly, it contains far fewer calories and carbohydrates than any other type of alcohol.
I have nothing good to say about bread. Even whole wheat bread often contains a little white flour. Reserve the bread for cheat meals, and still eat as little as possible.
For example, if you order a pizza, ask for a thin base. When you want a sandwich, order it open, with a slice of bread. When you eat out, take only a slice of bread from the breadbasket and then move the bread basket away.
Fermented bread and whole wheat bread will be ingested somewhat more slowly than other varieties, making them slightly better options.
Embrace different varieties of pure seed foods like quinoa, lentils, beans, brown rice, and slow-cooked oatmeal.
The quinoa is a great seed containing a large number of proteins.
Avoid pasta as much as possible.
Choose light and skimmed versions of milk and yogurt. Use them more in recipes than in real portions.
For example, use plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise.
Forget about flavored yogurts, which are worth two because they contain a lot of sugar.
No sweet is good. Save them for a day when you want to cheat or just after weight training.
Fruit and fats
Choose fruit varieties with fewer carbohydrates and calories, such as blueberries, strawberries, melons, kiwi, apples, and pears. Forget about tropical fruits like papaya, mango, and pineapple.
For fats, choose fish oil foods like salmon. You can also take controlled servings of dried fruit between seven and ten at night as a snack.
Be sure to choose healthy nuts that are low in fat. Raw almonds and walnuts and raw organic peanuts are good options. Flaxseed oil is also highly recommended.
